My sole reason for buying any toy now n'days is for its supported media rather it be comics, games or a television show. My toy collection just started as an Optimus Prime collection, mainly buying Optimus and related characters such as Optimus Primal. But then came the Classics Series of Transformers. It got me excited seeing new characters remade with modern transforming 'technology', and the first time in a while I started to buy figures besides Optimus Prime. Slowly my interest in them started to fade but FansProject showed up with their awesome and got me back into the series again, same for the Henkei line. It's not that I don't like the figures, it's just hard to keep interest in them without supported media. Now Transformers Animated comes into the picture and I get into the series a little too late when it comes to collecting the figures so it's a little hard trying to catch up. But not so much anymore thanks to the Japanese line and this local shop I go to! The point I'm trying to make is that I find myself waisting money because I loose interest in these figures to the point where there a nuisance to look at and I want to get rid of them. I was born in the 80's so I didn't start seriously collecting Transformers until the Beast Wars. Watching the shows on TV got me excited about the toys and I had every character on the show besides Inferno, Scorponok and Terrorsaur. I even tried the movie line for a while but most of those figures are kind'a ugly. So when it comes to Transformers collecting now, my main focus are the comics. I'm also trying to start up an oldskool G1 collection as well and get caught up on Animated.... Basically, I just wanted to know have any of you been turned off by Transformers because of it's related media or lack of.
